  7. FrankenTank is Cycled but first some updates, the chiller I spent all that time hardpiping has been removed, it creates heat in the room which only works if the room air is being cycled which it is not at night. I run the aircon in the room 24/7 to maintain temp, its my office as well so I am there most of the time anyway. (you are welcome to convince me on a better solution) I have added some livestock to the tank over the week: 1 orange spotted Blenny (friendly fish) 1 sand sifting goby 1 green clown goby 1 blue tang 1 copper band (eating mysis like a champ) 1 sand star 2 snails 1 boxer shrimp 1 cleaner shrimp 2 medium hermit crabs some corals Equipment: Lights - Orphek Atlantic return pump - Jebao DCP5000 skimmer - Aqua-excel wavemaker - who knows, cheapie thing while waiting for new ones Monitoring - custom Arduino with probes (PH and temp so far) next: crossflow and wavemaker pumps (ordered) diy refugium auto topup auto water change? dosing system? more automation
  8. Hi all I am looking for a Yellow Hawaiian Tang. Please pm if you are letting one go
  9. I plan to use the chiller loop to also feed water to reactors in future. That and the original pipes were leaking lol
  10. Some pictures of the hard plumbing for the chiller
  11. Day 2 of the cycle and the tank is much clearer now. Placed live rock today as well. Came from previous owner, rocks had sat in buckets for a few days. Even so there was a snail and a emerald crab that managed to survive the journey unnoticed. (They are in the tank now) Praws are starting to decay. Tank temp is 25 to 28 celsius fluctuating. Not running cooling at night. I plan to hard pipe the chiller. Currently it is on flex hosing with its own pump. Should I place it inline with the return? Should I run the skimmer during a cycle or not? Lights I am running 12 hours. When should I start ghost feeding? Some say from day 1 others say once prawn is removed/decomposed.
  12. Thanks, I just ran the test again and it's 9.3, so I must have messed the first test up. I'll test again tomorrow to be sure. All test kits are new.
  13. Update Everything has been washed with RODI water. I have fixed the hard plumbing and added a sock filter. I might change the Chiller to work on Hard piping. Should I have my chiller on a separate loop with its own pump or should I put it inline with my return? After testing all the plumbing filled the tank. I ended up getting Tropic Marin Syn-Biotic Sea Salt from Specialised Aquatics. I left the sand that came with the tank and vacuumed it with a sand cleaner, there was alot of fine sediment that came off. The water is not very clear and should this settle? Will activated carbon help? any other advice? I took my first measure measurements: Salinity: 1.024 Ph: 7.7 Kh: 15 (This seems very high?) Ammonia: 0.15 Nitrate: 0 Nitrite: 0 MG: 1290 Cal: 425 Lastly I added 2 prawns in a zip bag with a rock. Let the cycle begin.
  14. Looks really awesome. Is that under sand filtration?
  15. What would be the best way to: 1) remove old glass dividers 2) add new glass/perspex divides
  16. Day 1: stock take, cleaning and plan Collected all the equipment together to see what we have. The plan is to try use what we have before buying any thing. https://photos.app.goo.gl/eaq4o7Pfpr5ChpzZ8 I will have to buy some sea salt today if anyone has a recommendation. Time to make RODI water and scrub everything. Call these the before shots. https://photos.app.goo.gl/Z5Y6K4PQb66GoGrA9 https://photos.app.goo.gl/5mypMxtc5yLxmSjC7 https://photos.app.goo.gl/s6sHsHmQNjs6rBhP8 I will also have to fix some plumbing at a later stage as a pipe was cut in the moving process. The sump has 3 section but I am thing how to divide this down the middle to create 6 sections, please let me know your advice.
  17. Hi all I am new to Singapore (relatively 8 months) and very new to reefing. I have been collecting equipment from members of sgreefub and bargains on carosell. Over the next few weeks I plan to put together a build log of an epic reef tank from start to coral. Please follow, please advise and please be entertained as I take my 20 years of freshwater knowledge and throw it out the window. I have really enjoyed being part of the community so far and HOPE to contribue for the benefit of current and future refers.
  18. So I agree with both of you I think it was the recapping and introduction of a huge new rock that I got from specialised aquatics. I found worms in the tank. Inhave washed the rock with boiling water and it seems to be OK now. Thank you all for the help. I lost 3 fish and the anemone in the exercise.
  19. All fish / inverts we going limp. Moved them to new tank with coral and they are all doing better within 2min. I have left the anemone's
  20. I introduced a White blue tip Sebae Anemone in to my tank. It settled in well and found its spot in the tank. It is about 10cm in diameter when spread out. Yesterday I changed the rock scape around and this morning I have a fox that is not swimming well, a snail that's suicidal and a gobi fish that's being digested by the anemone. I fear the anemone had gone on a rampage. The other soft corals are not plumping up like they normally do. All tank measurements seek ok. Do I hope the anemone settles in again or do I just pass it on.
